Path to Membership Class: Exploring UU History & Beliefs

Sunday, April 14 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM in the Oak Room
This class is part 1 of a 2-part class on the path to membership at UUCM, allowing participants to share their own spiritual journeys and to interactively explore a broad overview of Unitarian and Universalist history and what it means to be a UU. Current members and friends are very welcome to join in the class also. Childcare is available during this event. Facilitated by Melissa Martinson, Membership Ministry.

Soul Matters Study Groups

The Spring 2019 Soul Matters sessions are currently underway. Check back for future enrollment opportunities.

Soul Matters groups offer UUCM members and friends adult spiritual development and the opportunity to connect with each other and with our deepest selves. We gather in small groups of 6 to 10 people with  a facilitator. Each group meets for 90 minutes every other week for a total of 6 sessions.

Our monthly worship themes are studied deeply through readings, inspirational quotes, questions and practices. Participants receive a resource packet each month with background information, questions for discussion and contemplation, spiritual exercises, wise words and other suggested resources.

In each meeting, we share what it was like to “live with” the exercises and the questions as we share where the topic took us, and hear the experience of others. This sharing is at the heart of the Soul Matters program and our experience is further deepened by the group’s sharing.

Newcomers and friends are especially welcome! Please contact Susan Goll or Rev. Terri with any questions.

Beloved Conversations: Meditations on Race and Ethnicity

The Spring 2019 session of Beloved Conversations is currently underway. Check back for future enrollment opportunities.

We are excited to bring back Beloved Conversations — a small-group curriculum for exploring the role of race/ethnicity in our lives. It’s a time for compassion, grace, risk-taking, vulnerability, and the healing joy when cross-racial relationships are reconciled. Not only does it offer opportunities for individual change for people who are white, but it provides organizational support for institutional change and faith formation resources explicitly for people of color. This curriculum has been used by nearly 150 UU congregations across the country since it launched 5 years ago. Continue reading →
